What's this all about?

25 years of messenger expertise bring you our updated Custom Classic Messenger Bag. Designed in San Francisco with decades of user testing and consumer feedback in mind, our updated Custom Classic Messenger features a new refined look, updated fit, and smarter organization. A new shoulder strap features finer webbing, Timbuk2's new Double-Loop CAM buckle that adjusts quickly and eliminates dangling straps and works perfectly with the optional new curved air-mesh strap pad for increased comfort. The SR buckles are partially concealed behind the messenger flap for a more refined but just as secure closure. Inside, the waterproof TPU liner and corner wings keep water out, and optional internal water bottle pockets promote hydration (and water fights). Distributed internal pockets and organization balances the weight of your carry. It's a classic reborn and ready to be worn for another quarter century.

    This is my third Timbuk2 messenger bag. I use the small size as a diaper bag, medium as my camera bag and large size as a diaper/travel bag. Love all of them.

      This is the third timbuk2 bag I have owned, but the first that I designed. I LOVE it. I work in nonprofit and have lived in Atlanta, San Francisco and now New Mexico; and I travel a lot. My bag goes with me everywhere!

        Comments about Custom Classic Messenger Bag:

        My daughter uses this bag for middle school. She has to carry several binders. We decided to try a cross body messenger bag to see if it worked better for her back than a back pack. I'm not sure it was the best choice for a high volume of books & binders, because it can be hard to take on and off if it is packed too heavy and if she's wearing a bulky winter coat, but I've not heard any complaints.

        The bag itself is of excellent quality and made of very durable material. She chose the custom option. The colors and printed fabric are true to what appears on the website and they work beautifully together! She is really pleased with the design. The stitching is tight, the velcro closures are strong and the strap is wide. Overall, an EXCELLENTLY made product. And I love that it is made in the United States.

          From school, to band, to football games I got it covered. It's roomy enough to carry a change of clothes and stylish because 'it's my design'.

          Love it and the heavy-duty construction.

          I just wanted to say how much I love my new bag. It is even cuter in person than online. It is large, roomy, attractive, and stylish. The strap is comfy and it hold my computer, my work, and extra diapers and baby stuff for my little one. Lightweight enough that I can take it to work, school, around town, or on my bike on the weekends. Just what I needed! Thanks!

          We gave these to all of our developers and they just plain loved them. The ease of customizing it was second only to the service I got when I had questions. We'll be ordering more. Timbuk2 made me a customer for life.

          P.S. Just one outside pocket would be great. :-)

            I have this bag from the mid 90's and just wanted a new one cuz I'm a bag junkie! The old one still has lots of life in it even after my hard use of it. I love all the new pockets and upgrades that they made to this bag. Fits perfectly in HD hard saddlebags. Keep bringing the good stuff timbuk 2!

                It's a very nice custom made bag but it ought to be for what I paid for it. I ordered most of the options but when the bag arrived none of them were there. Apparently the computer dumped them at some point. Their solution was to say Sorry, offer me a coupon for another and the missing parts to have someone local sew in.
                If I am not satisfied with the first one, why would I buy another?

                  I use my bag to bike to work every day with a bulky laptop. The bag is great! Solid construction, I like the simplicity in design. It holds a ton of stuff and sits perfectly and comfortably across my back as I bike. Between commuting and the large amount of business travel I do, I live out of this thing. I love how great it looks too, I get compliments on it constantantly.
